The department aims to integrate the ideal of the humanistic science of nutrition with the methodology of education and the research of the humanities. This discipline is organized into four areas:
- Scientific Research into Life and Nutrition
- Scientific Research into Food and Cooking
- Science of Nutrition
- Nutritional Research with Special Focus on the Tohoku Area
We cultivate mindful "dietitians" with the knowledge and skills to play a truly active role in their communities.
"Diet" is the root of human life and is deeply intertwined with human health. In order to become a specialist in this area, one must study the power that nutrition provides to the body and soul in great detail; it is also vital to develop a deep understanding of the human "body," as well as "community environment" and "culture" as they all factor into dietary habits.
We train an individual who can understand the link between diet and human, and support a healthy population through the science of "nutrition"
By studying various aspects of "diet" and viewing it from the perspective of regional attributes, local environment, and community culture, you will learn to be a dietitian capable of coordinating human and community health and providing individuals with specifically tailored nutrition management and guidance based on human nutritional sciences.
